The 3 stooges bag man met with Hillary(D)

"Baghdad" Jim McDermott(D) and his fellow useful idiots were on Saddam's dime as they took sides... against America: Saddam paid for 2002 Congressional junket to Baghdad
Stephen F. Hayes reported "Baghdad" Jim McDermott(D) actually said, after 12 years of sanctions, that we should trust Saddam and that Bush is a liar, even as Congress voted overwhelmingly for the use of military force to execute the Clinton administration's policy of regime change.
trust Saddam
“I think the president would mislead the American people.”
“I think you have to take the Iraqis on their face value.”
All while "Baghdad" Jim McDermott(D) was taking money from Saddam's agent Al-Hanooti's and lying about it.
Well... Steven Emerson has Exclusive Photos Show Al-Hanooti's Political Clout, Pictures with the three stooges, Hillary Clinton(D), Al Gore(D) and Syrian President Bashar Assad.

But take a deep breath...
Allahpundit

In a 1997 interview with this reporter, Muthanna Hanooti said that at the meeting, Mrs. Clinton was “very receptive” to his request for an easing of the American sanctions on Iraq that were in place at the time. He said Mrs. Clinton “passed a message to the State Department” about the need to implement the oil-for-food deal, which was intended to allow Saddam to sell billions of dollars’ worth of oil to pay for food for Iraqi citizens…

[T]o reporters on the foreign policy beat in Washington at the time and to those active in the Iraqi opposition to Saddam, it was clear whose agenda was being advanced. The news article in 1997, published in the Forward, that described Mrs. Clinton’s involvement with Mr. Hanooti began: “The American-led blockade of Iraq is crumbling, following an intensive, domestic lobbying effort that has involved Rep. David Bonior and Senator Abraham — and, according to some sources, Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

So I guess the Clinton(D) administration didn't really believe in regime change did they?

Now, why does this matter beyond exposing the usual hypocrisy of the (D)emocrats? Well, because Saddam supported terrorism, via Noam Sayin' at LGF:

1. U.S. Grand Jury Indictment of Osama bin Laden, dated November 6, 1998: Paragraph 4. “In addition, al Qaeda reached an understanding with the government of Iraq that al Qaeda would not work against that government and that on particular projects, specifically including weapons development, al Qaeda would work cooperatively with the Government of Iraq.”

President Bush listed 22 reasons to take out Saddam in his State of the Union Address. Yet with 400 tons, that's Four Hundred TONS of yellow cake uranium siezed, 1-1/2 tons of uranium that was enriched beyond the level required for fuel for nuclear plants Saddam didn't even have, with all of his Nuclear-Chemical-Biological scientists having fled the country, the (D)emocrats would have you believe there were no WMDs. Really? FARC has 66 pounds. Where did that come from?
